This month marks the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the modern state of Israel. Depending on your perspective, that's either a a cause for celebration or mourning. Through a variety of perspectives, Sandy Tolan tells the story of an unlikely friendship between an Arab exile and a Jewish émigré, both of whom are connected to the same house. We'll spend the hour with the author of The Lemon Tree, listening to excerpts from the radio documentary that came before the book, and talking with Tolan about his reporting, about the story itself, and about the lessons it holds.
